$\begin{array}{1 1} 72 \\ 120 \\ 240 \\ 480 \end{array}$

- No. of arrangement of n different things in a circle =$(n-1)!$

Total no. of ways without any condition =$5!$

No. of ways in which two particular persons are together=$4!.2!$

(i.e., assume the two persons to be 1 then there will be 5 persons (4! ways) and

the two persons can interchange their positions in 2! ways.)

$\therefore $ no. of ways in which two persons are never together is

$5!-4!.2!=120-48=72$
